Abstract:

THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATION IS IN THE GENERAL AREA OF ACOUSTIC WARFARE. THE SYSTEM CONCEPT TO BE INVESTIGATED IS AIMED AT ACHIEVING DECEPTION/DIVERSION OF OPPOSING ASW FORCES. THE CONCEPT IS BASED ON EXPLOITING WEAKNESSES IN THREAT ACOUSTIC SENSOR SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO CREATE FALSE TARGETS. OPERATIONAL APPLICATIONS MIGHT INCLUDE CREATION OF FALSE TARGETS TO DRAW AWAY ASW AIRCRAFT FROM FRIENDLY FORCES; USE OF FALSE TARGETS IN SETTING UP CHOKE POINT BARRIERS; AND USE OF FALSE TARGETS FOR DIVERSION IN ORDER TO ESCAPE SUPERIOR FORCES. IN EACH OF THESE INSTANCES, THREAT DECISION-MAKERS WOULD BE CAUSED TO MISCALCULATE BASED ON FALSE SENSOR INFORMATION.
